LEIPSIC — The high school volleyball season is heading into the last couple of weeks before the start of the tournament and the Ottoville Lady Green traveled to Leipsic to battle with the reigning Putnam County League champion Lady Vikings in preparation.
Ottoville took control of set one before the hosts tied it midway in and eventually came away with a victory on their way to a 25-19, 25-16, 25-23 sweep.
The Lady Green scored five of the first seven points in the opener before Leipsic turned it into a back-and-forth contest. Junior Taylor Mangas delivered a kill for Ottoville to make it a 12-10 margin but several Big Green hitting errors allowed Leipsic back into the set.
The home team tied it at 12-12 on consecutive errors by the Green and took the lead for good on yet another miscue on the part of the guests. Senior Abby Siefker (15-of-18 hitting, 5 kills) smacked a kill for Ottoville to keep the score within two at 15-13, bringing back and forth scores, and Lady Green senior Tammy Wannemacher (8 digs) sent across an ace to put the tally at 19-15 in favor of the home team.
However, the Vikings got the momentum going their way again, using the talents of Kelly Nadler, who delivered a pair of aces and kills before a Ottoville hitting error ended set one.
